This one is less complex yet faster than most It reminds me of "The Drama You've Been Craving" in speed and great sounding riffs. They are more Sleater-Kenny'ized rock riffs than S-K signature riffs. Still, both Riff 1 and Riff 2 do a little S-K twist between the first two and second two bars.
I think this song illustrates the precision of guitar 2 that's present in most S-K songs. You can certainly play all 8th notes but Corin doesn't on the recordings. The precision add's a lot the rhythm. It's a great song even if you play 8th notes.
Quarter note = 196 or so.
Standard tuning. Riff 1 would be easier to slide if you tune down.
Tabbed where it felt good on the fretboard but there are alternatives.
These images a pretty big. I hope you can be patient for the graphics to load. (They aren't that big.
Riff 2 has some variations in the last 2 bars
